    Start Menu for All Users


    I'm trying to move some custom shortcuts from my "User" profile Start Menu
    to the "All Users" profile Start Menu. Unfortunately, all of the folders in
    Vista that contain what appears to be the "All Users" profile Start Menu
    give an "access denied" error when I click them.

    Where is the Vista equivalent to the Win XP's "All Users" profile Start
    Menu?

    this is easy or should be an easy call. have you tried being in
    admisnistrator priviledge (sorry for typos) then going to the "start menu",
    then and right clicking on the "all programs" you should have two choices,
    "open all users" and "open". Open is for the account you are logged on to
    and open all users of course is for all users menu, hope this is clear, and
    works for you, after this is easy you just have to move or copy the file
    over form the user account you are logged on to and copy them to all users

    Go to C:\Users\User_name\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start
    Menu\Programs

    If you don't see it, make sure that hidden files are turned on.

    Re: Start Menu for All Users


    Sorry to drag up an old thread, but this is top result in Google if you search for "All Users Start Menu Vista" however there's no satisfactory answer on the thread.

    The All Users portion of the Start Menu now lives in the following location;

    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu

    Hope this helps someone out there looking for the answer.
